About Us

The Simone France Skin Care tradition is handed down from mothers to daughters to granddaughters.

A simple, daily common-sense cleansing and moisturizing system that works in harmony with the skin’s natural processes.  It works for every age, every skin type, every skin problem.

We don’t follow trends. Simone found what works over 50 years ago and it is just as effective today as it ever was. If you find something you like here you will always be able to get.

We are 3 sisters-in-law who have worked with Simone since 1999 and we hope you will become part of the Simone France family.

Just like Simone cared for one face at a time in her NYC studio, we want to have an on-going, one-on-one dialog with you about your skin.  Now, and as your skin's needs might change over time.

We encourage you to take our on-line quiz or schedule a complimentary phone consultation.  Let's talk about your skin!

True French beauty means finding what works uniquely for you and being faithful to that, without being distracted by trends and hype.

"I’ve been a national beauty editor and writer (Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, Seventeen) and head of PR for Olay, Lubriderm, La Prairie and more.

Sally Riddles

Co-owner, Simone France Skin Care

"My life changed when I picked up the phone one midnight in September 2000 to hear Penny (she’s married to my brother Tom) weeping into the phone, begging me to quit my job ASAP and come work with her start-up skin care company. A big story in Vogue had just come out and she and Simone had a tidal wave of orders...

Jean Kjellberg

Co-owner, Simone France Skin Care

"I would hear Sally and Penny talking business on family vacations (I’m married to Sally’s brother David) and they always seemed to be having such a good time together. I’d been using the products for years with great results - I have VERY sensitive skin and it’s hard to find anything I can use for very long - so...

  • People who try our products stay with us for their lifetime.
  • Because you can’t find skin care like this anywhere else …
  • My mom was a fashion model who followed Simone’s method and used her products every single day. I started in my teens, and I never had any of the big skin problems my friends had. At 30 my skin looks ten years younger – and I know that, like my mom, I will have beautiful skin throughout my life.

  • My dream of singing at the Met Opera came true a few years ago and Simone France is a lifesaver for my skin. There’s heavy makeup every performance that only Simone France removes completely without damaging my skin. And before every HD performance I use Instant Radiance and French Clay Mask because my pores are shown larger than life on those movie screens!

  • I have very sensitive skin and there are very few products I can use. Once I found Simone France I found my skin care for life. It’s so simple and natural. My skin is great now. My teenage daughter is now using Simone France and she is sailing through adolescence with hardly any oiliness, blemishes or blackheads.

  • The customer service is absolutely the best. They spent lots of time with me, learning about my skin and explaining why I was having problems before and why they made their recommendations. My skin has never looked better – I get compliments all the time – and I love that I can have a closer relationship with this on-line company than I ever did with any salesperson in a store.

  • For years I tried everything to fix my skin. Drug store, department store, dermatologists, spas, you name it, I tried it. My skin only got even worse. Someone recommended Simone France and as soon as I spoke to them I knew they were different. When I tried the products the first time I was amazed. Why doesn’t every company do this? That was ten years ago – I have been using Simone France ever since and I am constantly complimented on my fresh, healthy complexion.

  • The first time I tried Simone France was the first time I felt comfortable in my own skin. My skin is extremely dry and dehydrated, and this is not helped by the fact that I swim for an hour almost every day. My face was red, bumpy, peeling and felt like it was 2 sizes too small. I’ve been using Simone France for 10 years now, and I am actually loving my complexion. No more redness, bumps, flakes and dryness. Vive Mme. France!
